It was a little confusing that Shannon (the elder) and other elders could be acting so disrespectful towards Gidon and order him around,(him being an alpha). I like my alpha's well to be alphas. The romance of the book is so exaggerated. I honestly didn't see any spark within their relationship which made them any different to other books I have read, except for the obvious fact that their love is great because they are soulmates...oh, wait...I may have heard of that one before...And the fact that he did not want her at first because it is dangerous, and she is weak, and pathetic, and could not possibly protect herself.This doesn't mean that I've hated this book (I quite like it), but It wasn't like I expected to be.Brie and Gideon

    Have you ever read a book that shook a part of you on a very human level that you didn’t realize a book could do that to you? Well that is exactly what Tattered Loyalties did to me and for me. Without spoiling the Meta Arc of this series before a reader gets the chance to read it for themselves I am going to try to give you the best review that I can and explain why I felt a connection to this book like never before.First I am a huge Redwood Pack Series fan and was thrilled to hear that Carrie Ann Ryan was going to allow those fans to see the future of the kids we saw born in that series and in the war throughout that series. Having said that you DO NOT need to read the Redwood Series in order to start The Talon Series, Carrie Ann Ryan does a very good job of explaining the history of the world so that readers can start with Tattered Loyalties and feel just as immersed in the world without having to read anything prior. But of course I highly recommend reading the Redwood Series just for the experience.The Talon Pack is led by An Alpha named Gideon that came to be the alpha through nontraditional means but in doing so gave his pack the only chance of survival from itself and the evil that was living within it. Now Gideon must face his past and the future that he feels is looming over his pack, with all the plans he is putting in place to protect his pack from what could possibly be coming for them he never thought that what could be the answer to his biggest problem, himself, would be a mate. Especially a mate that he thinks could never handle the evil he feels he is surrounded by.Brie is a Redwood; she has always known where her place has been within her pack and has always known that it was important and needed in its own way for the survival and moral of the pack. It’s not one of strength in the traditional manner but one of love and softness, within that love and softness comes its own strength that not all wolves appreciate or see as valuable as traditional strength. When she realizes that she is the solution to one of Gideon’s biggest problems, Brie decides she would rather sacrifice her need for “happily ever after” for duty, in the hopes that she can be exactly what the Talon Pack needs to really heal and move forward and survive whatever may be coming in the future.Things don’t go very smooth, there are members of the Talon pack who do not think a submissive wolf can be the Alpha Female and will go to any length to make sure she will not be for long. But Brie’s strength doesn’t come from her skill in fighting it comes from her sheer will to strive in life and in whatever role the Fates believe she is fit for and she will prove to the pack that she is the Alpha Female they need and deserve.I was very pleased that Carrie Ann gave us a few glimpses into the next couple whose story will be told next in the series, it had me intrigued and captivated and a little restless to be honest, in a good way of course for the next installment.The only thing that I did not like about Tattered Loyalties was I felt utterly unprepared for the emotional roller coaster I was on especially in the last chapter, I felt like I was hit by a mack truck and it’s rare that Carrie Ann leaves the reader feeling that way in the end of her books. In that sense I feel that her writing has grown a bit darker and has gotten heavier and to be a long time Carrie Ann Ryan fan that shows me some growth. It scares me a little thou because I am afraid to see what the Brentwood family’s future holds.Now on to why this book rocked me, the meta arc of this series that the Talon Pack and the Brentwood family will have to face throughout this series is something that I fear daily in my life. I am afraid to see the true nature of this evil written on the page. I think that’s says more about my humane side than it does about the books and I am curious to see how others feel about it after they read it as well. I know that IN THE END there will be a happily ever after but I can only imagine what this family and these character will have to go through to get there. In my opinion I believe that this series will be an emotional investment but one that will be well worth it. I Give Tattered Loyalties (Book One in The Talon Pack Series) by Carrie Ann Ryan 5 out of 5, solely because of the impact it made on me and as a reader that’s what we want right? For a book to impact us and stay with us and I have a feeling this book and this series will stay with me for many many years.

    3 stars... I wanted more!I really did enjoy it. Don't let my star rating fool you, but in the end it was just an average shifter read for me. I love the concept of fated mates which is why I gravitate towards shifter reads in the paranormal genre more than vampire or demons. (view spoiler)[ Instead being happy and elated with finding his fated mate, the alpha and hero, Gideon, is conflicted because she is a submissive. Even though he says constantly how much he values to submissives in his pack, he doesn't want to claim Brie because of that very reason! Brie has the same concerns but he should have claimed her, cherished her, and stood by her.(hide spoiler)]For the reasons above, I kinda disliked about the first 30ish% of the book. On one hand it's nice that this book had a spin on the fated mates concept, but on the other I just wanted the H to go crazy and be happy about his fate.I'm not sure if I'll continue with the series.. most likely will look for sales of the following books if I do!

    Gideon Brentwood is the Alpha of the Talon pack. Brie is a submissive of the Redwood pack. Fate has pronounced them mates. It's up to Gideon and Brie to find out who are the traitors. Thank goodness they have the Brentwood family to help them out. Will Gideon and Brie stop the traitors before they tare apart the pack? Will Brie and Gideon's bond become more than fate?This story is well executed and well written. There are a few grammatical and spelling errors but they do not distract from the storyline. The main characters are a strong couple completely supported by a host of secondary characters. The plot and a few subplots were not tied up because there is a cliffhanger at the end of the story. There is adult language and explicit sex in this novel.

    I have enjoyed reading the Redwood Pack series from the first book I read. I am extremely happy that Carrie's imagination and creativity for Redwood story has her writing about the next generation. This is the type of series I just love to read because you get a chance to read about children of the previous storyline. It is 15 years into the future after the Redwood pack defeated the Centrai pack in the war. I was so excited to read this book especially because the Redwood Pack series was AWESOME. I enjoyed this book from the beginning, Carrie Ann has the imagination and creativity to grab the reader from the first page until the last page. There is drama, a hot and sexy Alpha, you will want to keep reading for the exciting main and supporting characters. The amazing thing is that Carrie Ann is a author that's always on my list to buy automatically and is one of my favorite.Brie Jamenson is a submissive wolf she the beta Jasper and Willow daughter. Brie grew up within the loving arms of family. At the age of seventeen Brie meets Gideon the Alpha of the Talon Pack and her future is change forever. So for years Brie didn't date and went through her breeding cycles alone. From that time on Brie did everything she could to avoid Gideon because he was her mate. But she feels that she can't be a mate to the Alpha of the Pack. Unfortunately the fates had other things in store for Brie.Gideon Brentwood is the alpha of the Talon pack, became alpha after he challenges his father and won. Before Gideon took over the pack his father had almost destroyed the pack because he was mean and very cruel. But since Gideon had became alpha there have been a few lone wolves to challenge Gideon to be the Alpha of the Talon pack. Gideon feels he alone bare the burden of the pack, he had to guard the pack from all of the threat of humans finding out about werewolves.unfortunately the elders who has called a meeting is about to upset Gideon life more than he can imagine.I am very excited about the Talon Pack series it promise to be just as compelling as the Redwood Pack series. I am intrigued and mystified about the new story line. I can't hardly wait for the next book in the Talon pack series. THIS IS ABSOLUTELY MARVELOUS AWESOME READ!!!!

    Fans of this author who adored the Redwood Pack series will be overjoyed to see this the first in a spin off series. Ms Ryan has cunningly moved the storyline into the future allowing readers to get a glimpse of what happens next but this time it's all about the Talon Pack. Fear not though because old friends still appear but it's all about the next generation and the aftermath of the Werewolf wars. Gideon is Alpha of the Talon pack and has no idea that his fated mate is part of the Redwood Pack but that's all about to change! When Brie was seventeen years old she caught a glimpse of the man that made her Wolf howl but has always avoided him as she realised he wouldn't exactly be overjoyed to find out his Mate is part of a different Pack and a naturally submissive Wolf to boot. As an Alpha Gideon would never choose a submissive Wolf as his Mate but fate has a funny way of turning the tables on the unwary. When Gideon is pressured to take a Mate Brie steps forward to take up the challenge but convincing Gideon that's she's exactly what he needs is no mean task. If Brie can't convince Gideon how will she ever gain the trust and support of the Talon Pack? Things quickly go from bad to worse though as Gideons worse fears are about to be realised!I really enjoyed this book but didn't love it as much as others I've read by the author, Why? I think although there is action here it got a little overshadowed by all the hot loving the couple share and I really wanted to experience more of the Pack dynamics . That being said it does have a solid plot that really opens things up for the author to explore in subsequent books. The main characters do get their happy ending but there's a cliffhanger of sorts that really needs to be addressed and even a glimpse of just who the next couple might be but boy is that a messed up relationship! This was well written and a joy to read,hurray for great editing. I really enjoyed getting to know these characters and can't wait to read more.Four and a half from meI was gifted a copy of this in exchange for an honest review by the publisher

    Wolfie's has been given a copy for an honest review. Let me tell you right now hands down to Carrie Ann Ryan. I honestly could not put this wonderful book down. From start to finish I was captivated. This book is a wonderful extension to the Redwood Pack, all of our wonderful Jameson's had had their presence known. Brie the daughter of willow, and jasper a submissive wolf known of her mate, and a young age. Knowing that he was an alpha to another pack she wanted to keep her self hidden. She felt that she would be wrong for him, because of her submissive side. Oh was she wrong in so many ways. Gideon the alpha of the Talon pack was always on edge always having a challenge for his spot that he has fought for over 30 years ago, yet he was missing something till that one faithful night when the Jameson's came to the talon den to discuss their concerns. Brie present at this faithful meeting has sealed her worst fears. She faced Gideon for the first time since she seen him from afar when she was just 17.Gideon knew then she was his fated mate, how could the goddess be so cruel he thought to grant him a submissive wolf to be his fated as he was an alpha. How would she be able to protect the pack as an alpha pair? Oh she was going to show him a thing or two.So many secrets he has held in that really tormented him from his past with the former alpha, his father. The elders all though he had some on his side there was one that would turn everything in shambles. Oh she was bitch in all purposes. I can't go more into detail because I will spoil it for you. Let's just say she will tie his hands and force a mating with another. Brie sacrifices herself to mate Gideon to help him. Why would he need help she is a submissive. No he was so wrong on that. She surprised Gideon in so many ways she was a little dominant as well. She proves herself in so many ways not to just her alpha, but to her new pack. The secrets are revealed, their hearts becomes one. Gideon's past comes to hunt him, and try to kill his fated. He opens his heart. He learns to love. Oh my goodness there's so much to tell, but I can't it will spoil the read. Carrie you have captured everything you needed in this wonderful extension of the redwoods. I can't even express the full depth of what I felt while reading this wonderful book. You have truly done it again. Can't wait for the next one.

    I'm one of those people who like to know if there's going to be a cliffhanger at the end of the book Carrie Ann you naughty girl you left us a teeny one! Not between the main characters but just that the story is going to go on in the next book. Gideon is head-honcho, the big man, the alpha and the boy lacks lady skills unless they're in the bedroom and he's dirty-talkin', "eff, I've had a hard-on for you since I first saw you, but I just don't like others knowing what I'm doing." Brie she's slowly coming out of her shell with Gideon, I mean she's always going to be a submissive in the pack but she's getting more comfortable with her man, "he leaned down and kissed her hard, "I like it when you say eff. Makes me think of effing you." Brynn her story is going to probably be emotional from what I gathered in the scenes she was in but I'm so excited to see her kick some butt!

    Gideon has struggled with pack loyalties ever since killing his father and getting rid of his uncles. Brie has know since seeing Gideon many years ago that he is her mate but because she's a submissive she felt she wasn't good enough to help rule the Talon pack. Between the both of the they struggle to cope with being newly mated in a pack that doesn't like of trust Gideon rule or having a submissive as a dominant alpha female. Really like how even though Brie isn't dominate she strong and powerful in her own way. I liked that Gideon admitted he struggles with his new feeling but expresses it in his own way. Loved this new series. Was worried it would fall flat but I'm very happy to be wrong. Looking forward to how Brynn and Finn story plays out.

    This is a great introduction to the series. Gideon is an alpha male with a huge chip on his shoulder. He has trouble letting anyone help him and doesn't know what to do when fate mates him with a submissive. Brie has know that Gideon is her mate for 15 years but when they come face to face she is not prepared for his lack of reaction. When they are forced to accept their mating neither of them think they are suited. However looks can be deceiving and they both discover that their is more to their partner than they realise. Change is coming and together they will face the future. I look forward to finding out what happens to all the Talon on Redwood packs.

    The pack’s stability is threatened and as Alpha of the Talon Pack, Gideon Brentwood is being forced to take a mate only fate has stepped in and given him a mate that he shouldn’t want in this exciting paranormal romance.Brie Jamenson, as a pack submissive knows that her strength is her heart not her claws but mating with a pack alpha could have deadly consequences and the reader gets drawn into the story as Brie takes a stand to do what she must pack traditions put Gideon’s between a rock and a hard place. Brie’s character is stronger than everyone thinks and really captures the heart as she proves to everyone that being submissive does not mean weak while there is plenty of red hot sizzling passion between them the relationship will take a little work as they have to get to know each other and overcome preconceived ideas.These strong captivating characters grab the reader’s attention and the fast paced and smooth flowing plot keeps reader’s on their toes with lots of suspense, excitement and romance. There is never a dull moment as the pack members have problems with the mating but also there are some dangerous enemies inside the pack that endangers everyone as they have a diabolical agenda that Gideon and his family will have to uncover if they hope to survive. The scenes and details are well written and bring the story to life and the well orchestrated events and surprising twists ensure that the reader wants to know everything.I have been waiting impatiently for this story and I have to say that it was well worth the wait as I have completely fallen for the Talon Pack and the sexy Brentwoods, so I will be waiting on pins and needles to find out what happens next.

    Tattered Loyalties (Talon Pack #1) by Carrie Ann Ryan Three decades ago, the Talon Pack helped the Redwoods defeat the Centrals at war. Gideon Brentwood, Alpha of the Talons, discovers that the daughter of the Redwood Pack’s Beta, Brie Jamenson, a submissive wolf, is his mate. He worries about claiming her for her safety and the good of the pack. I love the Redwood series and was excited to read this spin off. I was not disappointed. Gideon is a great Alpha, especially considering his upbringing. He is fair and just. He values his pack above himself. Brie is an interesting heroine. She is continually underestimated and surprises people. Many assume she is not strong because she is a submissive wolf. In reality, she is resilient and composed. She is a huge asset with a great personality. The plot was intense and unexpected. It was filled with action and intrigue. Tattered Loyalties was a great story that I flew through. There were some snippets of Brynn Brentwood and Finn Jamenson throughout the book. I look forward to reading their story in book 2, An Alpha's Choice. Complimentary copy provided by author/publisher in exchange for an honest review.

    Tattered Loyalties by Carrie Ann Ryan was amazing! My heart went out to Brie and all that she had to face mating as a submissive to the pack's Alpha. Gideon wasn't thrilled with the idea of mating to a submissive, but when forced to choose between that and a mating forced on him by the elder council, he chose Brie. This book was fast paced and sucked me in from the beginning (I read until almost 2am because I couldn't put the story down). Normally I hate cliffhangers, but this book did it right. The cliffhanger wasn't within the love story, but was within a larger story line that I'm sure will travel throughout the series. For those who have read the Midnight Breed series by Lara Adrian, this is a similar cliffhanger to her books. This is the first book bye Carrie Ann Ryan that I have read dealing with wolves, but it won't be the last. I'm now wanting to go back and read all of the books in the Redwood Pack series because this book is a spin off from that one. This story gets 5 stars from me along with an absolute recommendation for all paranormal romance readers.

    While I've devoured most of this author's other books, I gave only recently touched the shifts and I love them! I just read Wicked Wolf recently, so the moment of meeting Brie spoke of was clear in my mind, and I figured something was up thenFull disclosure, I was choked up through most of this book. The confusion the Brie felt, it reverberated through me very deeply. It kept me glued to the story, because I had to know how they worked everything out, because I set it aside, I needed Brie to have her HEAIt didn't disappoint, and Gideon an Brie both had so much to learn, so much to give, and their journey to figure these things out together, near perfection!

    I will be the first to admit that I love books about werewolves and shifters add that to the well known name of Carrie Ryan and you should have a winner. Unfortunately, "Tattered Loyalties" was a disappointment. Why? First, I was quite taken aback by the grammatical errors such as to vs. too and secondly the character, Brie, reminded me quite a bit of Anna in Patricia Briggs series Alpha and Omega but not nearly as good.So, Gideon is an Alpha who has been mateless for 30 years but when hosting a meeting with a nearby pack he feels the mate pull but with an Submissive, Brie. Unfortunately, they both know that she would never be accepted by his pack because he needs a strong Alpha female or does he? When the council of elders attempt to force a mating on Gideon with a wolf he despises, Brie steps up to the task of mate. What they don't know is that someone from the past is about to return and threaten not only their mating but the safety of their pack.While this read had some interesting ideas, so many aspects were underdeveloped and unfulfilled leaving this book to okay rather than truly exciting and good. Clearly I won't be going on to other books in this series. Sorry Ms. Ryan!

    Even though this isn't a new book, I've only just read this. Although it is the first book in the series, it gave me the impression that it was further in, as there are obviously characters which were expected to be familiar to the reader. I found out that this is Book 1 in the Talon series, which is a spinoff from the Redwood Series, which explains the familiar characters. As book1, this provided a good grounding for the series to come. There are plenty of characters from which to build new stories, although I having not read the Redwood series, I was slightly confused where everyone fitted. Overall, I enjoyed this book. It provided a good read with engaging characters in an interesting story. While the romance story between Gideon & Brie is complete & standalone, there is an overarching storyline which, no doubt, will continue into the future books. While I enjoyed it, I would recommend reading the Redwood series first, if possible, simply to having the grounding before starting on the new series.

    Have it in Audio . Book one of a paranormal wolf shifter story. The moon goddess showed both characters who their mate was . One character is an Alpha Gildeon Brentwood and his mate is a submissive Brie Jameson . Brie saw her mate 17 years ago but she didn't want to face it and maybe the moon goddess would pick after a few hundred years another mate for her . Gildeon is forced to mate by the elders in the pack . The elders had someone else picked for him until Gildeon advised he knows who his mate is . Once they are mated Gildeon pack won't accept Brie a submissive as the Alphas mate and bring nothing but Trouble . Also Gildeon won't allow Brie to show her true Self . Her true wolf . Another threat shows up , someone from Gildeon past a family member . What kind of a threat is it

    I received the book for free on the giveaway section for an honest review.I give the book 4 out 1/2 stars because the writing was great, but the story was cliche. Your typical paranormal shape shifter romance needs to find a mate to bond without first developing the romance, just get married and then making out in bed. Later tell his dark past after doing sex with Bire, then he says he is in love with her and that is not how romance work. At the end it did surprise me what Leon had on his sleeve, so I would read the sequel.

    More excitement with a different pack. I loved the Redwood pack, so it's nice to meet a new pack, but even better that the Redwoods are still representing. Gideon is an Alpha that slowly gets under your skin, in a good way. It's not long till you're totally taken with him. And Brie, you can't help but love from the start. This is the start of more excitement, suspense, "stress" and of course, love. Can't wait to read more

    Brie and Gideon get 3.5 Stars. It was a beautiful story with much potential. The love Story between the two was very sweet. And I loved the drama in the Pack. But I feel with all of that the book moved a little to fast and the villains did not got the attention they deserved and died far too soon. You could have filled two books with this plot and it would have been better. But I was captivated with the story and I am very curious how it will continue.

    OkayNot a bad story, but too much sex and not enough action for me. I liked the characters although I couldn't feel their emotions or connections through the writing. I didn't feel the chemistry between the main characters,however it was refreshing that the mate bonding wasn't Insta love and that the characters had to really work at it to feel it . HEA for the main characters. Although this isn't the end of the story it wasn't a cliffhanger either.

    Ugg!I hung in until the end ONLY so I could have the ending. And SURPRISE cliffhanger. The parts of this that we viable story could have been condensed into a good novella. Perhaps I'm a prude but the sex scenes were vulgar and I felt no actual live or passion.I will not be continuing this journey.

    Breath Taking and Intimate!I've read this book several times and haven't ever been disappointed. An uber alpha H that lives and breathes for his pack and a born-submissive h whose inner strength of will belays her seeming vulnerability to pack hierarchy. This is their love story and well worth the multiple reads.
